The “Dirty Dozen,” besides being a film classic, is also the annual report from the Georgia Water Coalition.

The 30-page report lists 12 of the biggest threats to Georgia waterways — from the Chattahoochee to the Okefenokee Swamp.

The report also provides recommendations for cleaning up these waterways.

Jesse Demonbreun-Chapman, executive director and riverkeeper at the Coosa River Basin Initiative, joined “Closer Look” host Rose Scott on Wednesday’s edition of the program for a conversation about his recommendations for addressing pollution in Georgia’s water.
